Qatar's foreign minister on Monday accused some Arab states of supporting the Israeli offensive on Lebanon to dismantle Hizbullah. Speaking to Al Jazeera television, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr al-Thani, whose country is a major US ally and has low-level ties with Israel, declined to name any country.
"I am surprised at the Arab agreement ... For Israel to end this issue and end the presence of Hizbollah in this region. There was more or less agreement from some Arab states that Israel completes its mission before a ceasefire," he said. (Reuters)
